Letter: Flies and maggots- how is this acceptable?

Can you please explain how, in 2013, it can be deemed acceptable for my family and I to have put up with:

· Maggots crawling all over our refuse bin (which is an eyesore in itself, as are all the other bins which we look out on in our residential area of Sussex)

· Having to keep our windows closed during the warm weather in order to keep out flies from both our bins and those of our neighbours

We follow all the advice provided by the council but all to no effect and for the amount we pay for council tax i.e. circa £180 a month, we deserve better. The stench is awful

It is not as though we are in an inner city area .. this is leafy, middle class, Sussex!
